Missouri History Museum Goes Solar
Microgrid Solar installed a 25 kW solar array on the roof of the Missouri History Museum in St Louis as a part of program offered in partnership with US Bank.
The St. Louis Nonprofit Solar Leasing Program enables St. Louis area nonprofit organizations to enter into a solar lease agreement that eliminates the upfront cost. The system, comprised of 100 solar modules on the roof of the museum, is projected to produce over 32 MWh each year. The panels are installed on a ballasted racking system, so there are no holes in the roof to invite leaks. The DC electricity is fed into two inverters in a mechanical room, where it is converted to AC to feed into the building’s electrical distribution system. This solar installation is part of an ongoing sustainability push by the Missouri History Museum.
